Ohio Institute of Allied Health Inc. Nursing Education Program Registered Nursing Diploma

The Nursing Education Department (NED) shares the OIAH mission to facilitate health promotion and the healing process of individuals and communities through:

Integrated nursing practices that recognize and respect the principles of a

Mind-Body-Spirit Connection

The OIAH Registered Nurse (RN) diploma offers a unique holistic focus to the standard Nursing program. Our students learn about today’s fast growing complementary and alternative techniques, as well as learn hands-on techniques to utilize in your future career as a RN! In just four quarters you can receive your diploma!


The RN program prepares the graduate to competently and safely provide basic nursing care within the State of Ohio Nurse Practice Act mandated scope of practice for selected clients in various structured health care settings. The traditional practice role of the RN can be expanded through the completion of the RN program at OIAH. As the nursing shortage intensifies, the current RN role and responsibilities will continue to shift to meet client needs according to the established plan of care.


This competency-based program is 12 instructional months in length and incorporates the nursing process as a teaching/learning tool. The student will have opportunity to learn about nursing concepts and skills in a familiar classroom environment as well as through textbooks and online learning modalities. In addition, students will practice simulated experiences in the skills lab and perform competencies in the actual care environment under the supervision of an experienced registered nurse.


Successful completion of the Nursing Education Program will lead to a diploma and eligibility to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).

Program Features Include:

  • Utilizing the holistic care process to assess, plan, and evaluate traditional and/or integrated nursing care interventions that honor the uniqueness of individuals, families and communities.

Future Outlook

Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 19 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur for a number of reasons, including an increased emphasis on preventative care; growing rates of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity; and demand for healthcare services from the baby boomer population, as they live longer and more active lives.
